I have been working at Carbonite full-time (Less than a year)
Carbonite has a lot of nice benefits like: - unlimited vacation - flexible schedules - free lunch on Fridays and breakfast on Mondays, unlimited snacks (with healthy choices) - competitive salaries - nice 401k match, excellent heath care plan, commuter benefits, etc. People are really smart and the business environment is very casual. I would say the organizational structure is pretty flat and employees of all levels can talk to C-level executives freely. The Star Wars themes are really awesome too.
As any other company, they have a few areas of improvement: - The company is slow to react to market changes - Products haven't been overhauled in a while so they tend to look outdated - Mid-senior and a few executives don't have passion for the products (at least the CEO seems to have it). This represents a challenge for innovation and speed to market.
Advice to Management
Give more career opportunities to people, give them a path to gain experience and learn other areas. Embrace change rather than embracing the status quo.
